Hahahahaha. Someone check this guy's bank account statements. Stay out of the water folks.

Japan is all grandiose in talk, but when it comes to walking the implementation, it’s BS as usual. They still haven’t properly filtered out strontium nor cesium yet.

International Standards? Decided by the industry. Not going to be happy following that band wagon.

Pls be aware that not another disaster is needed. Why is there only one person deciding ???.

IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi is a diplomat. The sole purpose of the IAEA is to promote nuclear energy. No nuclear qualifications.

Dump it. Does not matter nor dangerous. Colorado is more dangerous for radiation than some slightly tainted water.

“Global standards of practice” for an event so utterly unprecedented means that they’re making this up as they go along. But what’s worse is the lies and weasel words.

All nuclear plants release tritium-tainted water into the rivers and seas. This is one of the prices we pay for our nuclear electricity.

The IAEA say they will monitor what comes through the pipes. I hope they will consider refiltering it if and when other elements like cesium are found still remaining.

This pressure of this stored water has to be released, preferably by a two-prong process, i.e. evaporation and release to the ocean, from shore or out at sea.

It has to be done, sooner or later. Storing it forever is an unrealistic, although kind and considerate, exercise in impossibility.

Environmentalists should focus more on the future of nuclear power generation. The past is the past.

Common sense prevails... Dilution is the only solution.

And all that radioactive material gets concentrated in the environment for all living things to ingest-nice....
